Self-compacting concrete - Buildr

You might find that in certain situations it’s difficult to compact your concrete. You could consider using self-compacting concrete. It doesn’t work in all situations and is more expensive to buy, due to its high cement content. But it can work wonders around reinforcement and other hard to reach places.

Here are some of the main benefits of using self-compacting concrete:

  • No need to compact concrete! This is obvious, but the benefits are less obvious. Compaction is one of the more difficult parts of concrete placement. This requires care, supervision, energy and time.
  • Saving money? It might cost more money to buy self-compacting concrete, but it can save on time and wages of staff on site.
  • Saving time. This is great for structures that need to go up quickly. Or with several stories, as cold joints are less likely to occur and it will be easier to build the structure.
  • Fewer health issues. Using vibration to compact your concrete can lead to white finger over time. Where the nerve endings of your fingers are permanently damaged. There are also reduced noise levels, so hearing will be protected.
  • Tidy site, safe site. Self-compacting concrete can keep the working environment tidier. There is less manual handling, less equipment and a reduction in slips, trips and falls.
  • Steel reinforcement. Self-compacting concrete is easier for concrete with reinforcement. The other method is using small vibrators between reinforcement. This method is tricky and creates less complete compaction.
  • Self-compacting concrete decreases segregation. The mix design has more filler, cement and fine aggregate than regular concrete. This means that the mix is more cohesive. So there is less chance of segregation within the concrete.

BUILDR does not yet supply self-compacting concrete, but we can call our mother company- who can give you further information and will be able to provide it depending on your location.
